    That's great to hear! Thanks again for your feedback on this. :chuffed:

  • Still had to toggle enable Apple Watch to get the username and password to show on 7.2.2 final, figured you would find a work around for this or at least include it in the release notes, thought the feature was broken.

  • Interestingly, I didn't need to do anything special here.

  • Yes I would never have known this feature now works, as the release notes don't make note of having to re-add it. I was furiously tapping on the OTP to no avail. This thread solved it.

    @BrokenHope: I haven't found a good way to work around that on our end, no. The data on the watch is completely separate from what's on the phone, and it's encrypted by the OS. Glad that re-adding helped though. :)

    @TheDave: I can't think of a reason why that would be the case...unless you just got a new watch. :)

    @TravelSD: Sorry for the confusion there. We'll see if we can reliably "refresh" the data on the watch in the future without causing other issues.

  • I did get a new watch! But I checked the old one too and passwords appear there too, so something triggered a reload. Odd.

    Thanks for confirming. If we can figure out how that happened maybe we can turn that into a feature. :lol:

    Is there an option to restore the old behaviour, and sync just the TOTP codes? I was really surprised to see new synced items had a password on the watch, which you can only see if you know to tap the icon. The screenshot in the docs at https://support.1password.com/apple-watch/ even shows a TOTP code without indicating a password is synced.

    @deviantintegral: The behaviour hasn't changed. If you add a Login item which has a TOTP secret saved in to Apple Watch, that will be shown by default. As discussed here last year, tapping it will display the username and password instead.
